My Last 'Am I a Scrap Addict?' Card....

I'm pleased to report that Ali G came up trumps..... There was a knock on the door on Saturday morning, I opened it thinking it was the man from Next with a pair of jeans (!) and instead found Ali standing there with a huge bunch of red roses! They are totally lovely and I spent the rest of the weekend mooning around like a love sick fool!

But I did manage to fit in a trip to the new Ikea that has opened in town. I went on day 4 and it was very busy.... On the previous day, 25,000 people had been through the doors! Recession?! What recession?! I did manage to get some little jars for my flowers though (which I've colour coded obviously) and a set of wooden storage draws which I thought would be ideal for stamps (by manufacturer, naturally). Do you know, I think I have an unhealthy obsession with organisation.....!

Anyway! Onto my card. This is my last ever 'Am I a Scrap Addict' DT card and amazingly, for once, I managed to stick to the sketch! Check me out! I'd like to say a massive thank you to Deanne for the last 6 months of wonderful sketches. I can honestly say that I have created some of my most original cards using them.

What do you think of these gorgeous Autumn Leaves Rhonna Farrer paper? Isn't it gorgeous?! It has cute little owls on it... so tweet! Sorry....! Anyway, I'm dead chuffed with this card as I managed to use this vellum DCWV quote which I've had kicking around since I started crafting. I really love the effect of layering this over the DP. I'm also really pleased that the sun was out on Saturday when I took this picture as the colours are a really true match to the real thing. It's amazing the difference a bit of sun can make isn't it?

Goodie List........
Sentiment: DCWV.
Paper: Autumn Leaves - Rhonna Farrer, Core'dinations.
Embellishments: Hobbycraft border punch, Papermania brads and white satin ribbon.

I'm off to my SU! party tonight so better dash as I need to get the dinner on!
